Principal Investment Strategies

The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by balancing “long” and “short” positions. To do this, the Fund will buy (take long positions in) equity securities of U.S. companies that the Adviser believes are undervalued and more likely to appreciate and, at the same time, borrow and then sell (take short positions in) equity securities of U.S. companies that the Adviser believes are likely to underperform the long positions over time. The Fund generally seeks to purchase and sell short large capitalization U.S. equity common stocks of companies that are constituents of the S&P 500 Index. The Fund may invest across different industries and sectors. Under normal circumstances the Fund invests at least 80% of its assets (defined as net assets plus borrowings for investment purposes) in securities of large cap companies, it may also invest up to 20% in issuers of any size.
